Another one for the big shippers

If you do a lot of eBay or Etsy selling, you know that you can never have too much packing tape. (The same holds true for if you have children, I suppose, though I prefer duct or electrical when it comes to them.)

Right now you can get 4 rolls of Scotch Tear-By-Hand Packing Tape from Amazon for just $10. I know, I know; it pops up at $24. Ignore that and look in the “More Buying Choices” column to the right to get it direct from Amazon for the lower price.

Free shipping with Prime, or eligible for free Super Saver Shipping on $25.

Heck, at this price, I could probably keep the dog contained, too….


  1. At CVS in their $1 section they have rolls of packing tap for, you guessed it, $1 and it is the same size roll and near same quality as the $7, obviously overpriced, name-brand roll!

  2. Actually, I respectfully disagree, Angela. I bought no-name packing tape just once, and happily switched back to Scotch… I find it to be one of those things for which I’m willing to pay a little more.

  3. Thanks, Mir! I have been wanting a book and that was the perfect excuse to get it. Just 60 little pennies over my Super-Saver Shipping threshold. That makes me unreasonably happy, like I’m stickin’ it to the man in a small way…

  4. I’ve done all right with Walgreen’s packing tape, but name brand definitely works better. I mail a lot through, so I use a lot of this kind of tape. Thanks for the link!

  5. Picked up a six-roll pack at Office Depot for $6.99!!
